Container gardening with Kelly: Bountiful harvest

Some plants have been more successful than others. Oddly, the patio tomatoes are not doing as well as I had hoped. After the tomatoes started developing, the branches without blooms died off, so the plant looks a little bare.
What has done surprisingly well is the sweet 100 plant. I put it in an Ace hardware bucket that I put holes in the bottom of. I would guess I've gotten at least 20 tiny tomatoes out of the bush and it looks like it will keep giving. I wonder if I can move it inside at the end of the month and keep getting tomatoes after the frost.

These three jalapeno bushes that I got four for $1 are doing so well I'm not sure what to do with all the little jalapenos. I don't know how to use them all, but I'll try.

I let the basil go too long and didn't get the kind of harvest I had hoped for. Next year will be much better!
